Interactive Brokers Upsets The Field, Breaks Into Top Three Brokers

Everyone loves an underdog story, and this year Interactive Brokers (IBKR) provides one in IBD's seventh annual Best Online Brokers awards. Interactive, known for catering to experienced stock traders, nudged past TradeStation and TD Ameritrade (AMTD) to claim its spot among the three best brokers overall with Charles Schwab (SCHW) and Fidelity. Earning the top score in four of 14 traits that broker clients deemed the most important, including Low Commissions & Fees, Interactive Brokers has reached the top three brokers overall for the first time since the survey started.
